I came across this offer for blog candy. Not only is the candy itself amazing, but what Carolyn King is doing for caregivers of Alzheimer's patients is extraordinary! She is raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research by giving all the profits from the stamp set - Whimsical Autumn - that she designed through Gina K Designs.
Each one of us surely knows someone who has been affected by Alzheimer's - a close relative, a dear friend, etc. My childhood Sunday School Teacher was stricken with this terrible disease and even though I was young, I remember how awful it was for her family and all of those around her. Although that was so many years ago, when I read about what Carolyn was doing - it brought back so many memories. So I am sending a card to the caregivers at the address she has on her webpage. I am fortunate that I am not affected personally at this time, but my thoughts and prayers go out to those who are and this is a simple and effective way to let them know that I appreciate all of their kindness.
Visit Carolyn's web-page (HERE) for all the information on what you can do to show your appreciation for those special people and how you could win.
Here is the card I am going to send to those wonderful people:
